English Language

Post by LovelyLadyLux »

No dictionary has been able to adequately explain the difference
between COMPLETE and FINISHED.

However, in a recent linguistic conference
held in London, England, and attended by some of the best linguists in the
world: Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese, was the clear winner.

His final challenge was this: Some say there is no difference
between COMPLETE and FINISHED. Please explain the difference between
COMPLETE and FINISHED in a way that is easy to understand.
Here is his astute answer:
"When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE. But, when you
marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when the right one catches
you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!"
